Face Doctor Soap has had remarkable success clearing up acne and complexion problems for people of all ages, because it eliminates microscopic parasites now thought by some to be the cause of the problem. It was awarded the 14th Annual Salon International Award for inventions in Geneva, Switzerland, where it was touted as being a "truly advanced skin care product."
Skin that is rough and flushes, or if it is aging prematurely, experiencing acne, eczema, psoriasis or other blemishes, means there could be parasite activity. A team of doctors isolated a small unseen parasite called Human Demodex (demodex folliculorum aka the Eyelash Creature).
Many researchers believe that this parasite can cause complexion to become rough, lumpy and reddish, cause hair loss, premature aging of the skin, enlarged pores and acne.
The parasite looks like a microscopic worm and it feeds off skin. It takes only 10 days to grow from egg to full size and it multiplies at an extremely rapid rate if not treated properly, leading to Acne Rosacea, a bizarre type of skin rash that occurs primarily on the face.
In the Western Hemisphere, many theories about the origin of Rosacea have been put forth, but doctors are starting to accept that complexion problems may be due to this parasite. After extensive research, Dr. Mark Dahl, Chairman of the Dept. of Dermatology at the University of Minnesota Medical School, concluded that the lesions of virtually all Rosacea patients are infected by a parasite. And in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Dr. Frank C. Powell reported that 42 patients with Rosacea had on average four times as many of these parasites on their facial skin as compared to people without the condition.
